coincidence. joining us is president of florida league of women voters and jim greer, the former chairman of the republican party who's been very critical of what went on behind the scenes. first, thank you both for being here. >> glad to be here. >> jim, what can you tell our viewers with emmett "bucky" greer? >> he and his partner worked for me for a period of time when i was chairman. they are good at what they do. when you're looking for a lawyer that can write legislation and change the election laws, stand up potentially to a constitutional challenge, you reach out to people like bucky and his partner richard coats and they draft the law. they a they advise how it can get done and it's about keeping people from election day to win the republican election. >> keeping pop freople from get to election day? >> that's right. primarily down here in florida, reducing early voting days, put all of these obstacles in the way of democrats, minority voters from getting to the polls because down here in florida it's not just about the presidential election, it's about keeping power in the legis

know what dixicrast did to intimidate. they were known as jim crow. what we have going on in the 21st century in 2012 is jim crow's cousin, james crow esquire. this is what people need to know. they have planned this for months. this has been going on for months under the radar. it's now out in the open. two, i suspect that t they'veee scott and others will probably keep finding out and we're lucky to find it out just a few days before the election. >> absolutely. >> and finally, reverend sharpton, i will say this again. this is where you tell people, get out of my face because, remember, none of these people have legal authority. they have no legal authority to stop you from voting and that's what you've got to remember. just simply tell them to get the you know what out of my face and go in there and vote. >> now, we started seeing this in wisconsin, now iowa and elsewhere. scott, some liberal bloggers have suggested that project orca could lead in this sophisticated apparatus that we're talking about to voter suppression. give you an example. one blogger, nate samuel downs, quote,
white men. let me play what senator jim webb said to chuck todd on this issue. take a listen. >> how in the name of the lord can the democratic party, the party of andrew jackson, only be getting 28 periods of time of the white male working class vote? from my perspective it's because of the interest group politics in the democratic party, that particular cultural group doesn't believe the democrats like that. >> are some white voters turned off by the democratic party? if so, where does the popular clinton factor come in? >> the president is there and will be in ohio for a reason. the president can bring into focus the idea that with the right economic policies and if you stick with it, as we did in 1995 and 1996, prosperity comes along. the real key numbers in ohio are look at the unemployment rate when the president came into office and where it is now. it's down i think nearly 50%. the auto bailout, some of the president's investments in manufacturing have really paid off in ohio, frankly, at the end of the day we can talk back and forth about different demographics. the presiden
jim webb and mark warner win in virginia back when we thought virginia was a red state. you are trying to figure that out in and out. what is virginia? >> virginia is still pretty much a red state. a lot of people say purple. but if you look at the makeup of the general assembly and what's going on in local -- >> still easier to be a local republican, you think, and get elected than being a local democrat? >> well, of course, it depends on the state. i mean, if you're in northern virginia, it's hard to find a republican. if you get down where i live, it's hard to find a democrat with a search warrant. it's the tale of two states, as you're aware, chuck. >> but it's also culture. and i want to say something, a man you're close friends with, jim webb, in an exit interview i did with him, we talked about the specific issue that he thinks president obama is having. and if he weren't having it, this election would be over. here's what he told me. >> i will tell you, i said that directly to the president about two weeks ago. you know, how in the name of the lord can the democratic party, the

democratic businessman and hotel owner jim graves. he is convinced bachmann's failed presidential run is helping him. >> i definitely think people feel left out here. she hasn't been in the district or on the floor in congress. she just hasn't been representing the people. she hasn't been a voice for the people. >> reporter: a run that didn't sit well with some of her constituents. >> i think it hurt her because she really wasn't doing anything for the voters in her district. >> i think that was a waste of time and she wasn't maybe doing her job and i was paying for that? sure. i do. >> reporter: bachmann admits there's been fallout but remains confident. do you think your presidential run hurt you or helped you in the district? >> oh, i think that it -- i think there's both. i think there's a lot of advantages that came from it and i'm now applying that to the run this time and all of the polling numbers look very positive and people appreciate the work that i've done for the district so we're all happy. >> reporter: bachmann's fame makes her a prolific fundraiser and she is spending
reproduction. it's about the economy, that it's about race. when we think about jim crow laws, it was all about not allowing people of two different races to reproduce. i hadn't quite put it all together until i heard you say that, so i don't want other folks to misses that. and yet surprisingly the gender gap is less extreme than i might think it would be given these circumstances. is it -- when i look at the numbers, it says to me, yes, there's a gender gap, but it's still being driven primarily by women of color and by young women. so what's going on not just with the extremes of the republican party, but with women who hear this and i'm like, yeah, i'm town with them. what is that some. >> the conventional wisdom is when the republicans say these extreme things, those women will be turned off and vote if democrats. i don't think that's necessarily the case. it's not that they don't reject what is being said, because they do. but at the same time sometimes if you're independent and you are dead on the in middle, it's because you're turned off by booth pa both party. so democrats have to reme
rove super pac putting $2 million into pennsylvania. i was on a conference call with jim mess siena and jafds axelrod saying that's a bluff, that pennsylvania is not a problem. if people are worried about coming back from power outages which could last a week or more as they did after irene, and if people cannot get to the polls? this whole thing could be thrown up in the air. >> what's hard for me if you're trying to analyze this, well the president gets to look more presidential and that's good and mitt romney is sidelined or the president's voters won't be able to turn out. what's difficult this is a variable into an evasion that really has not changed basically two plus two has equalled four almost this entire campaign. it's been close. mitt romney has been behind slightly but it's been close. throw this other variable into this problem that we thought we had pretty much close to knowing the answer, close one or way the other, who knows. i think we focus on today, tomorrow but wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday into the weekend, can they resume campaigning? even if they do, t
president next tuesday. >> i would add, right before we came on, i got a memo from jim messina the obama campaign manager essentially pushing back on the idea that pennsylvania is now a swing state. so to mark's point, the president himself might not be engaged and rightly so but his campaign is still active. this is not 16 days it's six days. >> the romney campaign put out a memo about pennsylvania. >> absolutely. >> let me ask mark akbout pennsylvania. i was there last week. the republicans saying we can do this, we can win pennsylvania, democrats saying it's not even in play. what is your assessment? >> well the obama campaign needs pennsylvania to win. the romney campaign doesn't. i don't think they would be wasting the money in pennsylvania on the republican side if they thought they had no chance or at least a chance to distract the democrats. if the romney campaign went on the air in new york, i don't think the obama campaign would feel compelled to match the dollars there. if the obama campaign went on the air in texas tv i don't think the romney campaign would feel the need to g
spoke with the former head of the republican party of florida, a guy named jim greer who is in his own trouble over charges about some illegal money thing that he was doing, but when he was running the party he told me that republican consultants came to him and said, we want to craft a bill that would get rid of early voting if we could, or severely cut it, because in the words of these consultants, according to jim greer, all it does is bring every african-american out from under a rock, that's a quote, and get them to vote for democrats. they don't vote for us, it doesn't help us. so the republican legislature which in 2010 became more tea party, more conservative, there's no margin in it for them to increase access to in-person early voting. what they did is passed a law that didn't touch absentee voting, which republicans tend to dominate in, but severely limited the early vote. just to give you some numbers, you're talking about there were 96 hours, there are 96 hours this year total to vote. there were 120 hours in 2008. and already in the state, 3.46 million people have voted.
and three term congresswoman has a real fight on her hands. millionaire hotel executive jim graves is spending big time to take down the tea party favorite and the polls are tightening. >>> here's an interesting tid bit you can share your friends. the total spending of the 2012 election will beat the previous record by $700 million. you ready for this? 2012 election spending will reach a whopping $6 billion. >>> campaign staffers confirm jesse jackson jr. who is being treated for bipolar disorder and is up for re-election next week cast his vote by absentee ballot. jackson's office has no plans to hold election night events. >>> and finally, republican vp nominee paul ryan was able to take a quick break from the campaign trail to take his kids trick or treating for halloween in his hometown of jamesville, wisconsin. >>> rachel madow talked about the campaign and about holding a rally without seeming incense sie -- insensitive to sandy victims. they brought candy while asking for them to bring canned goods. >> to be clear, the romney campaign, they held the campaign rally. they call
's unheard of. jim cantore, he said this was the coldest hurricane he's ever covered in his entire life. it doesn't make sense. such a strange event. the storm sizewise was like the second biggest storm we've ever kept track of going up the coast including famous blizzards and hurricane. this storm was immense. the stronger the winds, the larger the wind field and the more water these storms throw on shore and that's why we have such problems. we haven't seen the worst of the pictures yet from the jersey shore. when chris christie said i think we'll be shocked when we see them tomorrow. there may be cases where the ocean met the bay. in other words, it just eroded right through the barrier islands and i think we're going to see some of that tomorrow. >> what will happen to terms tomorrow and this those snow areas. what can they expect from temperature tools? >> excellent point. usually you lose power and it's usy summertime and don't y. temperatures in the 50s and 60s during the day and at night, 40s and 50s. if you're trying to keep your family warm and you have no power, that's a whol

events in order to monitor recovery efforts. in an e-mail to supporters, campaign manager jim messina asked for donations not for the campaign, but for the american red cross stating "soon enough we'll get back to work on the most campaign of our lifetime. but the most important thing at this moment is you and your loved ones are safe and the rest of us do what we can to speed the recovery." the romney campaign, on the other hand, found themselves struggling to find the right tone. in an effort to avoid seeming insensitive to the millions of americans affected by the storm, the romney camp canceled appearances on monday and tuesday but rebranded others as storm relief events. senator john mccain spoke on behalf of governor romney at an event in ohio today and apparently missed the memo about putting politics aside. mccain slammed the president's handling of the the attack on the american consulate in libya. >> this president is either engaged in a massive cover-up deceiving the american people, or he is so grossly incompetent that he's not qualified to be commander in chief of our arm
be the odd surprise. >> jim? >> keep an eye on hispanic voters. >> that's what i agree. most pessimistic, romney side. what do you think? >> definitely nevada. definitely iowa. i guess wisconsin. wisconsin, ohio. they need one of those two. >> well, no. one of the other ones. either iowa or ohio or wisconsin. >> liz, what do you sense is the closest state? what's going to be the closest state? >> it's going to be my state. >> you think it's going to be the closest state? >> i think at the end, that's what we'll see, correct. >> i think it's going to be nevada. >> you think that's going to be the closest? >> yeah, i think that's going to be a razor-thin margin, presumably for romney. >> i'm going to stick with virginia. i've been going back and forth between virginia and colorado. i think it will be one of those two. that's it for this edition of "t"the daily rundown."" before we go, i have to do my shameless plugs. >> my friends and neighbors in new jersey, hang in there. everybody's thinking about you today. >> we all are. that is ditto for everybody. any other shameless plug? >> americ

fundamentally is speech. i asked jim bob does our democracy work better? he believes that it does. what you have to ask yourself though is does it matter where the money is coming from? somebody has $10 million to give but only gets one vote, is that the same as somebody who can give $100 and have one vote? there seems to be a distortion. >> kai, a fascinating story indeed. appreciate your time. thank you so much. >> all right, take it easy. >> sarah palin refusing to back off after comments about the president, some comments she made about the president were met with anger. >>. >> up next, katy perry trying a novel way to get out the vote. okay, that looks great. were you profitable last month? how much money is in your checking account? have the browns paid you for their addition yet? your finances are scattered all over the place. mm-hmm. what are your monthly expenses? you keep your receipts in plastic baggies? seriously?
